FACTS monthly installments: All families who do not pay in full by June 1 are required to pay in 10 monthly installments through an automatic withdrawal system (FACTS).

A $43 administration fee will be applied to your account by FACTS, the third party financial institution that administers the automatic withdrawal system. For more details please see the Enrollment Agreement.

Volunteerism and Charitable Giving

At Prairie School of DuPage, we are committed to being mindful of our families’ time and money. Unlike many private schools, there are no hidden costs, mandatory donations to an annual fund drive, or mandatory work hours.

Most families volunteer an average of 20-40 hours per school year helping out with things like serving on committees, chaperoning, field trip and specialty class driving, helping in the school garden over the summer, helping with projects on the grounds, etc. However, we understand that volunteerism can be challenging for many families particularly if there are two working parents. Instead, consider making a charitable contribution to the school. A gift of $300 for the year goes a long way in a small school. Donations can be made online, or directly in the office.
